Mt & Lake Tarawera

The northern end of the lake has great views of the mountain.
Mt Tarawera (1111m high) erupted violently on the 10th of June 1886 causing the death of at least 153 people and covered the surrounding landscape in mud and ash and in the process buried the village of Te Wairoa now known as the buried village
The photos are taken on the northern lake edge and show the private jetties, foreshore and mountain and a beach and house typical of the area.
